Favorite thing: Although Norris Point is a small town, it has a lovely cove where the locals and tourists can have barbeque during the summer to enjoy the scenery. Also, you can see the local fishermen going about their daily life while sitting and enjoying yourself.
The Woody Point Lighthouse is one of the historic landscapes of Newfoundland. The view from the lighthouse is astonishing, almost surreal. Behold the glorious sea, the quaintly shaped clouds, and the green mountain.
Fondest memory: Stability and Light. I have long been fascinated with lighthouses. Despite their robust structure, lighthouses are indispensable to sailors and travelers. Somehow I feel safe just looking at lighthouses. They seem very sturdy and stable. Even if the weather condition is pretty bad, lighthouses shine like some precious gem amidst the dark horizon. Lighthouses seem unaffected by the strong waves and thunderous wind.
My earliest recollection of lighthouses was when my parents took me to this picturesque lighthouse south of Bonne Bay. We drove hours and hours to get to this amiable town, and then traveled some more to reach the spot. There was nothing peculiar about this particular lighthouse. Aside from being fairly smaller than the other lighthouses I have seen, nothing is different about it. But the Woody Point Lighthouse is some of the most beautiful structures I have seen.
The roofs are cherry-red, the walls pristine white. It looks more like a generous serving of vanilla ice cream topped with ripe cherry. Built in 1959, this 20 feet lighthouse is still in used until now. The Woody Point Lighthouse is one of the historic landscapes of Newfoundland. The view from the lighthouse is astonishing, almost surreal. Behold the glorious sea, the quaintly shaped clouds, and the green mountain. The best spot in the lighthouse is up. You feel the cool breeze caressing you; the sun warming you all over.
